    Behind that big truck, and the way the vortex swirls, it's not terribly difficult to stay in the draft. Getting there is a ***** however.

    I paced a bread truck one morning at 70-80kmh. Once I was behind him, and up to speed, the truck just sucked me along. I will say though, hitting train tracks at speeds that high really sucks balls!

    With no wind, gearing and your cadence are the only limits.

    When watched the movie last Fall, I wondered if what movie showed was actually possible: Draft the the truck and maintain 60MPH on the flats.

    Is it possible?

    I love that movie (Even before I was interested in cycling- it's hilarious!), but is such a speed really attainable, drafting, on a fairly level road? I always thought not.
